Best DPS class? Is there one?

There are other factors to consider beyond strictly damage numbers. Many fights favor ranged DPS, some fights have mechanics that can be avoided completely by certain classes, and some fights allow certain classes/specs to artificially inflate their numbers (I'm looking at Rage spec on Warlords)..

Then you add in toys. When you take the raw numbers, add in range and cheese mechanics, we are left with the Sniper/GS as the best DPS class right now.

Bije - Operative Lifting - Guardian Bijje - Sniper

A lot of the peopl playing this game does not consider this though. PvP is a totally different ball game when it comes to dps charts. These charts are proven for PvE but they are wrong for PVP.

Apparently my perception is not that of the developers.

Yes well in 2.2.1 PvP became more intense, so sniper marauder are quite good with merc moving up the charts in PvE and PvP because I have seen it and they snowballed so hard almost killing me in 5 hits! PvE though have to say goes to maybe Vanguard, it has gotten much better

Few things,
1) that Shadow/Assassin parse is actually a Madness Sorcerer parse (mine). Torparse currently has a bug that marks a Madness Sorcerer as an Assassin. The top Assassin/Shadow parse would be 2721 from Wild-berry

2) I would use the parses from DPS Leaderboard 2.0+ as they have parses which are looked at in order to tell if someone had outside help.

Which means that the answer is the same today as it was when SWTOR launched: sentinel/marauder. Best DPS class. Best PvP class.

Any time someone asks about DD classes I always assume they mean PvP. DPS in PvE is not really all that critical. If you do more damage than Vette and can move out of the fire, your good enough for most things.

It always has been and still to this day is

MDPS Mara/sent
RDPS Sniper/Gunslinger


End of list.

Any other class that can fill 2 roles IE Tank/Dps Heal/DPs are all about the same when they opt for the DPS spec but all are below the 2 3 tree DPS specs. IE Mara/Sent Sniper/GS

don't know about the rest since I only looked at commando since that is my class but that parse is useless crap its only 64 sec long if the parse is not at least 10-15 min long its not even worth looking at
